Now midway through September, fall is nearly upon us.
Meteorologist Nadine Powell says although cooler temperatures have arrived, don’t expect them to stick around.
“We are expecting the temperatures will be seasonably warm. So, with the exception of the cool down that we are experiencing now, we do anticipate that our temperatures will bump back up a bit. And perhaps be a little bit above that seasonable norm for the next few months.”
Powell says temperatures should creep back to the upper teens within the next week or two.
In addition, the farming community can expect an average amount of precipitation this fall.
“Typically for this time of year, we normally see in the range of about 100 millimetres of precipitation. It’s not going to be a whole lot, but it should be closer to seasonal,” Powell explained.
To date, 32 millimetres of rain has fallen in Grande Prairie throughout September.
